She had been attempting an amazing bicycle trick, which involved taking her right foot out of the peddle clip while simultaneously and with an elegance that unfortunately failed to defeat gravity, toppling to the left. Frankly it could do with a bit of work as the end result was little more than a very sore and swollen ankle.
Hey , you, yes you, sniggering at the back….If you think you can take on this tough little cookie, be warned - Mrs B's pain threshold is remarkably high. Some regular readers may recall that a couple of years ago she managed to walk around on a broken leg for two weeks. This time it was a week’s worth of excruciating pain on a broken ankle. With the broken leg Mrs B got away with a few weeks in an air boot – but this one is a bit more serious and she finds herself encased in a full plaster cast, facing the possibility of six or more weeks on crutches…..
|A less than happy Mrs B with her new footwear...|
I'm not sure it will catch on as a fashion statement.
|On a positive note at least her cast matches our |
Coffee Machine so it won't clash with our kitchen...
So no need to have the Kitchen revamped then.
After three days of glorious sunshine, this year’s Bishops Stortford festival returned, a bit like Glastonbury, after taking a year off. The organisers had decided, probably wisely, not to take on last year’s dual challenge of the Queen’s Jubilee and the Olympics. It opened promptly at 11am on Saturday morning and the inevitable rain arrived shortly afterwards. Mrs B bravely decided to rest her ankle, leaving The Beast and me to venture forth alone. It was far from a lonely event though as I ran into numerous friends and acquaintances.
This weeks photo section is dedicated to the Bishops Stortford Music Festival and sees The Beast back in action. I didn't get to see as much as I would have liked, as I didn't want to abandon Mrs B for the entire weekend. So did a couple of late afternoon/evening stints.

A little on the heavy side for my liking.....
|Benjamin discovers self brain surgery|

Probably best not to try this one out at
home...even with NHS 111 as a safety net
The headline - unfortunately I didn't stay for long. While I have always liked the Christians' Music I associate it with bad times. I was listening to one of their albums when one of our cats ,Byron, was killed. I thought I would have got over it after almost 20 years....but sadly no it brought back too many bad memories...So I took a few shots and left after a couple of songs.....Shame - good singer and some great songs
The sole remaining Christian brother
from the original line-up....
Forgotten Town - Sounds like Bishop's Stortford
Hooverville (And They Promised us the World)
Harvest for the World
|Time for bed said Zebadee - even though|
Florence had not made it again this year....
